The Fear That Binds You
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
Fear has many faces, not all of them bad. It is a natural response to danger designed to keep us safe and insure the continuation of the species. However, over the years, unprocessed trauma and deeply held fear has also created many problems that threaten the very longevity it was designed to preserve.
Science is just discovering the far-reaching negative effects of unprocessed fear. Fear can block joy, inter-connectedness, intuition, love, and health. Fear can be very complex, impacting us on all four levels; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual and thus needs to be addressed on all four levels as well.
When and why did fear become so problematic? Why do we store trauma to our detriment? Does fear compromise our well-being in hidden ways? Is it possible to turn this around? If so how?
